Some Notes:

The eight recordings that make up "DisFamiliar" are dense improvised collages. Sounds created by instruments and non-instruments were routed through various mixers into a four-track tape deck to produce a live mix. Some of these sounds were fed into a Frippertronics-style tape loop system before they were plugged into the four track tape recorder. Two turntables also were employed to play altered vinyl records at irregular speeds and angles. Listeners should be prepared for a varied and complex range of audio stimulation.

"DisFamiliar" is Volume One of the Disism "reDIScovery" series of audio recordings. Disism was founded in 1985 by Charles Rice Goff III and Killr "Mark" Kaswan. There was no such term as "Disism" in 1985, when Goff and Kaswan made it up to represent their brand of non-genre music. Between 1986 and 1993, Disism released nine cassette albums to the public. The next public Disism release was a CDR, recorded and produced in 2002. In 2012, Disism met in Kansas City, Kansas, to record several on-site improvisations, producing three CDRs from their rejuvenated efforts. Over the many years that Disism has been in existence, some recordings of live performances and brief out takes from improvised recordings have been made public in various forms as well.

The Disism reDIScovery series was born in 2012, after Goff unearthed several cassette tapes of Disism in-studio improvisations and collages that had been recorded between 1988 and 1995. While a few brief portions of these tapes had been incorporated into Disism's official cassette releases, most of this recorded material had simply remained unheard and forgotten since its creation. Goff is responsible for editing these recordings into their current forms and for making them available to the public.

Specifically in regards to this collection, the portion entitled: "Back Pressure" was submitted to Haltapes of Florida, USA, for his "Tape Heads" compilation series in 1998, but it was not included on any of the Tape Heads releases. This piece, however, was included on the Taped Rugs CDR compilation: "Strays," released in 2006.
